Profile / Experience

I am a solicitor in the Family and Child Care department at Duncan Lewis. I work in the Croydon office under Director Kathy Walker's supervision.

I represent parents, children, and other family members in court proceedings including applications for various orders including; care orders, special guardianship orders, child arrangement orders, specific issue orders and prohibited steps orders.

Outside of court proceedings I regularly advise clients on a number of family and childcare issues, and have a particular speciality assisting parents where the local authority are involved and are considering issuing care proceedings. I represent parents in such proceedings covering various issues such as sexual abuse and physical abuse, non-accidental injuries, neglect, substance abuse and mental health difficulties.

I also have extensive experience representing clients experiencing mental health difficulties, clients for whom English is not their first language, clients with learning difficulties and other vulnerabilities. I have conducted court proceedings in all levels of court, including the High Court.

I have been a member of the Law Society's Children Law Accreditation Scheme in September 2016.
